Hello and welcome to my Blog! The Fancy It Up method uses embossing folders and markers to enhance flat, one dimensional die cuts and Cricut images. Use whatever you have to add multi-dimensional details to even the most blah cutouts. Join me as I demonstrate my quick and simple "Fancy It Up" techniques.
